It is a laser device with a warning not to point it at your eyes, and I have no experience with lasers but immediately start checking this one out. [Brain goes YEA!!! new tech toy] The print is so small on the warning label that I have to get very close just to still not be able to read the words on the label. Hence it looks like a giant laser up that close, so I wasn't lying in the blog title. I accidentally break the cute little flexible wand during the inspection, but it kind of snaps back together. "Honey, this is a laser device! Let me find you something else to use to read a book. And it would help a little to turn on the other lights in the room."
Next, I open it up to see that the "free" light has "expensive" single-use batteries. She complains that she needs something to help her read, so I agree to find her something that my newly purchased rechargeable AA batteries will work with (thinking greenly). Hold it now, rewind, let me repeat with a rephrasing: I am now spending money to replace something that came free in the mail. It was only later that I accidently discovered that there is a separate button that turns on the RED laser beam that comes blasting out a separate aperature, just missing my eye. Thats okay, I had two of them.
